Attraction details
Owner description: Much more than a walk-thru zoo, this historic tropical garden and nationally accredited zoo features a full day of wildlife experiences to delight guests with the natural world to inspire the conservation of our planet's remaining wild areas and their wondrous inhabitants. Discover the wonders of South America featuring a Giant anteater, Cotton-top tamarins, and more. Get wildly close to the Malayan tigers at viewing windows. Hand-feed the herd of giraffe plus enjoy your favorite animals like lions, monkeys, and bears. Naples Zoo is one of only four zoos in the nation to feature the fierce YouTube-favorites: African honey badgers. Plus discover rarely seen species including Malagasy fosas and 2 of less than 20 striped hyenas in the nation. Ask those questions you've always wondered about at the Meet the Keeper Series. Be fascinated by rare creatures during premier wildlife shows. Cruise through islands of monkeys, lemurs, and apes. Watch our professional staff hand-feed American alligators while dispelling popular myths. Snap great photos and learn the facts behind the fiction at a venomous snake talk. It's wild fun from apes to zebras. Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens is a nonprofit organization cooperating in conservation programs both in and outside the wild for endangered species. The zoo is nationally accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, the organization that sets the highest standards for wildlife care, education, and conservation. The garden also holds accreditation by The Morton Register of Arboreta and is a member of the American Public Gardens Association.

Reviewed April 29, 2013

This is a small but interestingly laid out zoo. A pleasure for little kids, especially, with lectures and special events that seem very up close and personal. I wish you did not have to exit through the store, but suppose that is how they make money.

“Good but PRICEY”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

The zoo was really neat. We went cause our daughter who is 11 loves animals, and wants to be a vet. She was excited to see they had Cheetas!!! Our son wanted to see the Giraffs. We loved the Zoo, but to just walk through was pricey as we didnt have all day to watch all the things put on. for 4 of us was 58.00 Was a once in a lifetime experience.

“Great little zoo for kids”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

This is a great small zoo for kids. It took us less than 2 hours to explore. The main zoo show is absolutely hysterical -- the zoo keepers were very funny and knowledgeable. The camel ride, shaded playground and feeding of the giraffes were great for young children.

“Great zoo”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

Loved all the animals, the shows were great, and the boat ride fabulous. Some of the workers less than enthusiastic. My daughter loved feeding the giraffe.
